Talisman Emperor (符皇) – Index

InVader’s English Synopsis:

Chen Xi was a jinx who radiated misfortune the way a torch radiated light, and everyone around him knew it. His entire clan was annihilated when he was young, and not too long after that his parents disappeared. His marriage contract? Poof. Torn to shreds and gone up in smoke before the eyes of everyone in the city, almost humiliating his grandfather to the point of suicide! Cultivation? No time for that, he had a family to take care of!

This is the story of Chen Xi, a youth forced to stop cultivating and instead craft talismans to pay for his younger brother’s tuition… and who, in the process, would rise to become known by all as the Talisman Emperor!

56 thoughts on “Talisman Emperor (符皇) – Index” - NO SPOILERS and NO CURSING

      1. Sorry!
        That novel sounds really good. Synopsis reminds me of world of cultivation a bit. Hope this novel will be another one i will read every update. And welcome, InVader ~!

  1. “Heaven defying fortuitous encounters”

    Its gonna be one of THOSE stories isnt it ;-;

    Lol but it still looks good.

    Thanks for all your hard work now and in the future!

    1. Every one of these stories is one of those :/
      In a world where every second person is petty and bloodthirsty, if you do not have plot armor you would just die in the middle of your journey.
      Even Leylin is extremely lucky all the time. Because it is not unfortunate to face a catastrophe that you can handle.
      But… I get what you mean…
      Sometimes it is way too obvious when say, the main character gets a lightning resistance and all of a sudden 80% of his enemies becomes lightning cultivators…

      1. Clearly you have never heard of key of the sunken moon (I think), where the main character seems to only be there to suffer for the readers supposed amusement.

      2. I don’t think it’s all bad to read about setbacks in a story.
        It might be good if the characters can persist or return later on for whatever reasons.
        A bad ending for the mc might not be that bad depending on how it is used..
        If the authors/editors don’t have to worry about their fans..
        Otherwise, there might be various novels with bad endings?
        The small details can make the characters feel more humanly interesting and alive.
        To always annoying succeed in every single task usually will feel too unrealistic as a human being.

  2. I’ve just read untill chapter 12 and the translation is good but the story
    wtf his clan was annihalated and then his mother and father dissapeared and he is still trying to ***** make it through common ways and doesn’t even blame them for dissapearing vor allmost all of his ***** childhood
    When his mother appiers in front of him he doesn’t even doubt her!!!
    i’m sorry but those things make me angry about the story so i’ll drop it

    1. There are very many web novels that begin pretty ‘meh’ before becoming good.
      I blame the fact that the books are released chapter for chapter. When the author publishes a book, I’d say that ninety percent of the work writing the book has been editing and rewriting, and that is after the books preliminary completion. The publisher won’t let through anything bad and almost always requires that you rework the book the first couple of times you apply for getting it published.
      Web novels do not have that extensive tampering.
      That is one of the reason that even the web novels that are incredibly good, have chapters and arcs that are outright bad.

      If you really hate it then I have nothing to say. However if not then I encourage you to read a bit more before deciding. 12 chapters is not enough to determine the value of a web novel. Heck, I have yet to find a single finished, long, web novel without hundreds of chapters that I really disliked.

      1. Itll nag me forever how he was just like “Oh mom who abandoned me is back, cool.” and even tho the mom might be awesome later and everything is fine… what about that moment? one small moment could ruin a whole novel. simple. Its weird, i dont like MC like that.

  3. 2202 chapters – 60 chapters = 2142 chapters
    2142 chapters => 2142 days until completion = 5.86 years.
    i need some reminder service telling me to check back in 5.5 years LOL

    edit: i wonder if i can reach a good enough level in chinese faster than 5.5 years. if chinese wasnt so damn useless in everything else i do, i might give it a shot :s i need that thing neo used in ‘matrix’, instant learning of languages *_*

    1. Nope. Harem is very bad in Chinese novels. It’s utterly disgusting in Japanese novels/manga/anime. To be fair, there are times when harem didn’t bother me much in Chinese novels but in the end, those novels become increasingly boring for other reasons. I haven’t managed to successfully finish one (or catch up with it).

      Sigh.. I knew it was too good to be true. Such a promising novel coming conveniently to my doorstep, there had to be a trap somewhere.. Harem, of all things! F*ck!! I’m holding no hopes of a decent story anymore but I think I might continue reading until it gets unbearable which I’m sure it will, so long as there is harem.

        1. A non-existant one? Harem are generally boring to read about and they are annoying with the useless competition between each member of the harem or the full-on acceptance of the main guy/girl having multiple wives/hubbies. I have nothing against multiple characters gunning for a single one, so long as it does not become the singular point connecting those characters together. On top of that, most of the time a novel has anything related to sex in its content (only read translations so I can’t say anything about the original, but I think that unless the translator has no talent for translation, their work reflect the original’s quality), it becomes cringe inducing, so either I skip the small passages or, if there is too much of, that I drop the novel.

    2. Great harem guess I’ll read about 100 chapters before i get disgusted by that harem aspect. How novels would be so much better without harems. They just don’t belong in cultivation worlds best left to those transported to another world type novels with skills and lvls where they get op slave magic

  4. younger brother’s tuition… and who, in the process, would rise to become known by all as the Talisman Emperor!

    When I read this, I for a moment thought his bro would become the Talisman Emperor, then I remembered he was the MC. Gonna wait for a ton of chapters before I’ll read this since it’s pretty intriguing. 😁

  5. I am 30 chapters in and since nobody has written anything about the story as of yet I might as well give it a try. I’ll try to keep this a spoiler free as possible

    So the story is about a young man who is a ‘jinx’. Now don’t get me wrong, it’s not the pokemon. Everyone around him meets terrible misfortune. This has been going on since the day he was born and you’ll find the protagonist after years of being shunned by almost everyone. He earns money by creating talismans and is quite lonely.
    So far the protagonist has a very plain and simple personality of “I need to work to allow my remaining family to survive” and shows his extreme altruistic side. A decent foundation for a story for someone that is extremely focused. It was a bit on the long side but a man needs his background story.

    “another tragic event” happens and from this moment onwards we start to see some character development. I have to admit that quite a few events after this are very reminiscent of Desolate Era (please note that this story predates DE).
    If you like a protagonist that exchanges tooth for tooth and eye for eye, is a bit OP, has a strong growth curve and only deals with ‘evil’ people you will probably like this story.
    If you don’t like a protagonist that is very meek (at the beginning) and slowly grows out of his meek state this story is not for you.

    Also beware random characters with bigger backgrounds than they should have and unlikely fortunate encounters

  6. I am writing this comment to warn other to-be-readers from potentially wasting your time.
    So I started reading this expecting an MC that conquers the cultivation world with his amazing talismans but having read to where the MC started fighting I realised talismans were nowhere to be found…
    So I went online to look for reviews and found out that the talisman concept doesn’t really play a part in the story except for the beginning? Readers having read a few hundred chapters commented that MC mainly depends on his body art and sword techniques instead of talisman…just like how almost every other xianxia novels are…how disappointing…
    So, if anyone is looking to read about an actual talisman emperor, you may wanna stop at the synopsis.
